YHWH Exists!

According to, the literal rendering of Genesis 2:5 from Hebrew into English is:
And all the shrubs of the field, not yet existed in the land, and all the herbs of the field, not yet sprouted, because YHWH Elohiym did not cause it to rain upon the land, and was without a human to serve the ground.
If you're interested, here's the Hebrew:

וְכֹל שִׂיחַ הַשָּׂדֶה טֶרֶם יִהְיֶה בָאָרֶץ וְכָל עֵשֶׂב הַשָּׂדֶה טֶרֶם יִצְמָח כִּי
לֹא הִמְטִיר יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים עַל הָאָרֶץ וְאָדָם אַיִן לַעֲבֹד אֶת הָאֲדָמָה

The Name, YHWH is יְהוָה and the word "exist[ed]" (HYH) is יִהְיֶה . Looking closely at the Hebrew forms, you can see the very close similarity between the two.

Indeed, YHWH is the Great I AM [Existence Itself].
